Is this your indoor fan (this isn't a window unit is it)? Turn the power off and make sure the fan spins freely by hand. If it does then check the capacitor for the fan. If it doesn't spin freely then you may need a new fan motor.

Do I need a new fan motor or capacitor or both?


You are on the right track. The motor bearings are tight if you can get some oil into the bearings and get the fan to spin Ok then you may not have to replace the motor. With the blade not spinning free the motor is over heating and shutting off on thermal overload. The capacitor may be weak but that won't help with the bearing being tight. The only other answer is to replace the motor and capacitor. if you can't get the blade to spin freely.

Fan is making noise like a bushing is rubbing


The nosie you're heraing is caused by one or more of the fan blade irons being loose, where they attach to the fan motor. Turn the fan OFF and once it's stopped spinning, check and tighten, as necessary, each loose, fan blade iron, screw. Use a Phillips head screw driver for this.

Hope this helps you solve the mystery of the whooshing noise. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My air conditioner tries to turn on, air comes out of vents but isn't cold, and outside the blades on the AC unit are not spinning. I hear a noise when it tries to turn on but they don't start...


Outdoor condensing fan motor has stopped running. This problem could be caused by a bad motor run capacitor. If your motor capacitor is not the problem, then more than likely you need a new motor. Is the fan blade tight, stiff or hard to turn? If the fan blade is hard to turn then you probably need a new motor

Have an expensive Hunter indoor/outdoor pedestal Fan that stopped working. It just "hums" and does not turn. Please help.


With the fan UNPLUGGED, try to spin the fan blade with a pencil or something that will fit through the blade cage.

If the blade spins easily, there is an electronic problem (control or motor) that must be serviced.

If the fan blade is stuck or very hard to move, the shaft and bearing are probably dirty and need to be cleaned. You can temporarily fix this with a tiny amount (a drop) of WD-40 applied to the shaft where it enters the motor. Spin the blade manually to work the oil into the bearing. If the motor spins freely, the dirty bearing condition is verified. To properly clean the shaft and bearings, the motor must be disassembled.

The dehumidifier's fan does not turn and makes a humming noise


first,make sure the fan blade hasn't gotten stuck on the shroud and cannot turn,then shut off machine and by-hand rotate fan and see if it spins to a stop after several rotations,if it stops quickly there is a bearing problem with the motor,this is normal after many years of service,then replace the motor
